Have you tried creating your own homemade bath products yet? You are definitely going to want to give this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Sugar Scrub a try right away, whether you’re a seasoned maker-of-homemade-bath-products or if you’ve never tried it before.
The only thing I love more than creating DIY beauty and body products is making them smell good enough to eat! While I wouldn’t recommend a big spoonful of this, it is much safer than any store bought version, it’s much cheaper to make, and so easy to put together you won’t believe it! Beyond one simple ingredient all you have to do is raid the pantry for a few supplies and you have a wonderful body scrub to keep or gift. Moms, friends, teachers – they will all love this deliciously scented easy spa treatment that they can do in the comfort of their own home.
Homemade sugar scrubs are the perfect way to soften and moisturize your skin in a snap; you can repeat this treatment in the shower several times a week for healthy glowing skin. After you use this chocolate covered strawberry sugar scrub, be sure to add a little whipped chocolate body butter. You’ll love the way your skin feels…and smells!
How to Make Your Own Chocolate Covered Strawberry Sugar Scrub
- In a large bowl stir together all ingredients until they are thoroughly combined.
- Add a bit more coconut oil if you find your mixture is too thick.
- Transfer mixture to a container with a tight fitting lid - mason jars are quite handy for this.
- If you are making this to give as a gift be sure to create a simple handmade tag letting the recipient know the “flavor” and maybe the ingredients. I'm including a simple gift tag here that you can print off and use for free.
To Use Your Sugar Scrub:
1 – Scoop out a generous amount onto damp skin, massage in a circular motion, rinse completely away, pat skin dry with a towel.
2 – Sugar scrub will be good stored for several months in an airtight container.
How to Print Labels To Give this Sugar Scrub as a Gift
Here’s a simple label you can use for the top of your jar. I’ve included one graphic image, and there are 2 easy ways you can use this. First, save the image to your computer.
Option #1 is to go to Avery Design & Print Online and use their free templates program to print them off on their stickers. Just enter design #22807 in the “start a new project” box and then click go. That will bring you to a page of lots of templates. If you want to use my design, click on the blank white circle (the first “design” there) and click next again. You’ll then see a big “graphing” circle in the middle of the screen. Click on “images” on the left menu and upload this image. Drag it til it fits the entire space provided. Viola! You should see the design populating the entire sheet to the right. You can print them on Avery labels OR you can just print them on any paper. (get the Avery circle labels here)
Option #2 is to open up a word document and insert this image as a file into a blank document. You can add as many as you want on a sheet, dragging to make it your desired size. I would probably opt to print on card stock versus regular printer paper.
If those options sound too complicated, then you can always add a scrap of fabric under the rim of your mason jar or tie a simple ribbon around the lid. Instant present-ready!
